Greeks Reference In India Texts 2000 BC
It is a fact that Indian history is full of misinformation.
Reasons are two.
Ancient Indians considered Life to be ephemeral, transient and concentrated on realising the Reality and were concerned about the origin of the world and other philosophical questions.
As such,they did not consider it worthwhile recording history or personal achievements.
Religious texts were transmitted orally.
And then came the invaders.
It did not suit them to have the enslaved Nation to have ancient history.
And they wanted to pit people against people by dividing them,pitting one against another, dividing them.
They wanted to impose their religion and culture on Indians.
They doctored history, misinterpreted it ,in its mild form,and totally lying in extreme cases.
Most of the time lying was resorted to.
Greek coins Balarama 180 BC
If one were to read Indian history,it starts with Alexander’s invasion of India and earlier history as found in the Vedas, the religious texts of the Hindus, Puranas, ancient history,and Ithihasas, Ramayana and Mahabharata,the epics of India were dismissed as myths.
All these texts contain verifiable and verified facts with Astronomy,Carbon Dating, Archeological finds, Geology,Plate tectonics,reference in foreign literature and culture.
If the first contact with Greeks was established only when Alexander invaded India,how come India references are found in Greek writings before his time?
There was a thriving commercial interaction between Tamil Kings and the Greeks even around 230 BC.
There was a Roman Colony in Madurai, Roman Colony in Madurai Tamil Nadu.
There was a temple for Augustus in
Dionysus and Shiva.
One more connection of Sanatana to Greece has been found in the relationship of Dionysus and Shiva.
Dionysus may be Shiva Himself because He migrated to the West during the great flood while Vaivaswataha Manu, ancestor of Lord Rama moved to Ayodhya.
Dionysus is found in the Atharva Veda.
Bhrigu and Greece
Bhrigu and others are also found in Greece.
‘by the pre-historic times the devotees Dionysus’s used to travel to India since it was a pilgrimage for them. The priesthood genes got developed into various tribes. So there are the Bhrigu(Bhryges), the Avanti (Avantes), the Kurus (Kuris), the Panchas(Panchaioi) theKoshas (Koes), the Sindhu (Sindu). They originate from different parts of Greece’
The Kurus and the Panchas originate from Crete and might be the oldest ones. The Avanti from Evoia. A part of them joined with A part of Kuris and created the priesthood Korivantes, who ruled Asia Minor. Bhriges, Koshas and Sindu were from Thrace, an area that covered this time all North Greece. A part of Bhriges moved to Anatolia and a part of Sindu to south cost of black sea. Bhrigu in ancient Greek means “to burn” and it is referred to the sacrificial ritual. Sindu in Thracian dialect means river. So is it possible the oldest name of Indus river deriving from them? Even nowadays in North Greece there is the municipality of Sindos. Most of the western researchers either don’t understand or they don’t want to accept the common roots of those cultures. But as I heard in Harvard they teach that the Sanskrit Soma has common etymological root with Greek saima that means originally the holly blood of the sacrificed God. Saimon was a holy mountain of Dionysus in Thrace, meaning blood..
Reference to Tamils in 70 BC
Greek historian records that the port of Hipporus on the coast of Sri Lanka was ruled by Tamil King.
A traveler from Rome reached the port through Arabia and leant Tamil.
This was in 70BC!
And more sites like Adichanallur,Keezhadi are pushing the dates even further back.
Misinformation by Scholars (?)
‘Max Muller in his ‘What Can India Teach Us?’ says: ‘If I call the invasion which is generally called the invasion of the Shakas, or the Scythians, or the Indo-Scythians, or Turushkas, the Turanian invasion… who took possession of India, from about first century BC to the third century BC.’ Again classifying Sanskrit literature he says, ‘we divide the whole of the Sanskrit literature into there two periods, one anterior to the great Turanian invasion, the other posterior to it, we may call the former period as ancient and natural, that of the later modern and artificial.’ Thus, Ramayana belonged to the modern and artificial literary period and Veda-s to ancient. According to Indians the Turushkas are not the Scythians but Turkish, and the Yavanas, are clearly the Greek. Michelson in his ‘Linguistic Archaisms of the Ramayana…’adds another phase called Epical period. Thus, there are three, Vedic, Epical, and the rest of it is modern and artificial. At the same time Max Muller says: ‘At the time of Solomon, there was a channel of communication open between India and Syria and Palestine is established beyond doubt, I believe, by certain Sanskrit words which occur in the Bible such as ivory, apes, peacock, and sandalwood, which, taken together, could not have been exported from any country but India…’ So Solomon, Bible, Turanian invasion, Ramayana… all occasioned at one time, i.e., around 0 BC. So many professors, so many researchers have not said a date agreeable to Indians as well as to the world.‘
Tamils trade with Greeks Romans.
‘Roman and Greek traders frequented the ancient Tamil country, present day Southern India and Sri Lanka, securing trade with the seafaring Tamil states of the Pandyan, Chola and Chera dynasties and establishing trading settlements which secured trade with the Indian Subcontinent by the Greco-Roman world since the time of the Ptolemaic dynasty’
‘The 1st-century Periplusnotes how a country called This, with a great city called Thinae (comparable to Sinae in Ptolemy’s Geography), produced silk and exported it to Bactria before it traveled overland to Barygaza in India and down the Ganges River:

Greeks reference Hindu texts 2000 BC
At one place, it is said that there was a rapport among these places India-Syria-Palestine and even up to Egypt, but at other place, the Indian thought, that the Indian had Greeks and Greeks had Indians, is dismissed. What prevents to agree that both hold up mirror to almost the same culture, though diverse in its practise, right from the belief of Greeks, viz., ‘the sense of many gods are there near at hand’ to various gods, to their names, to the epical literature, and also to myths and legends and dramas etc, is unknown. But when it comes to dating and mapping ‘the earliest date known for certain in Indian history is the invasion of Alexander in 326 BC…’ and ‘The chronology has been built up form the identification of Sandracrottus of Greek writers with Chandragupta Maurya… yet it is said ‘In the seventh century BC India was divided into sixteen Mahajanapada-s…’ as per ‘An Historical Atlas of Indian Peninsula”, Oxford. Peculiarly those sixteen Janapada-s did not contain the names of Yavana, Shaka provinces in atlases.
‘The Greeks, evidently descended from tribes who had come westwards from the early home of Indo-Europeans in South-Central-Asia, first settled in the land which we know as Greece about 2000 B.C….’ according to The Encyclopaedia of Myths and Legends of All Nations, Kaye & Ward Ltd., London. Their history about Ion, the king of Helice, and his war with Elsenians, the confederacy of Lonia in Asia Minor etc., speaks about their origin and shuffling, i.e., from east to west and again from west to east. It is they who have adopted Vedic Rain-god Mitra as their Mithras and many a temple was built all over Europe for Mithras. Even Goddess Lakshmi has Her counterpart in Greece ‘

‘Here we have a glimpse of the Arctic region with the Aurora Borealis to the north of the Uttara Kuru realms. The Uttara Kurus, it should be remembered, may have been a real people, as they mentioned in the aitareya braahmaNa viii-14 wherefore the several nations who dwell in this northern quarter beyond the Himalayas, the Uttara Kurus and the Uttara Madras are consecrated to glorious dominion and people term them glorious…’ Mouris, Sanskrit Series, Vol. I
